Have you purchased, a widescreen PC or laptop, have you noticed a black border, around the edge of the screen on presentation mode. In this tutorial, I will show you how to fix this.

Step 1

Open PowerPoint, and create a new document.
Step 2

Go to the Design Tab, then hit Page Setup.

Step 3

Then Select either 16:9 or 16:10, In my experience laptops are 16:9, and widescreen displays are 16:10. Then Hit OK.

Step 4

Click on the drop down menu on the theme sorter, then hit save current theme, and save in the location the dialogue opens in.

Step 5

Once saved then find your theme in the sorter, then right click and press set as default theme.

-----------
Now You have changed the default size of PowerPoint Slides, it will remain 16:9 / 10 if you change the theme.

Any Questions Post Below.
